These are 2 downloadable PDF templates that you will soon be turning into real, almost life-sized 3D paper cats using scissors & glue.

Gus and Gevenieve are siblings that used to squabble all the time over their mother's attention. Now look at them, they are inseparable. Seems like squabbles make bonds stronger.

They will add some still movement to a shelf, a desk, a chest of drawers or a bookcase, leaving all your guests in awe of your talent as a maker. Your guests will probably want you to make a another pair for them too!

Make the cats together on a rainy weekend, or while watching the evening show, or during your sleepless nights...

You will be so focused that you won't have time to think about anything else than being in the moment.

Decide on the colour of your paper, get crafty, and once youโ€™re done building them, delight at your creative genius!

The process is very simple to understand: Each part is numbered in sequential order. No headache in sight, my goal being to make you feel relaxed.

Team up with your teen and divide up tasks if you feel more like it!

A4 / Letter size in 160-210 gsm / 65 lbs cover

You can use either white cardstock and spray paint it, or coloured/patterned cardstock. I recommend against metallic paper, which takes longer to dry.

For all my prototypes, I personally use Iris Vivaldiยฎ by Cansonยฎ in 185 gsm, which comes in 50-sheet reams. They have 30 colours to choose from.
Brands like Recollectionsยฎ, Astrobrightsยฎ, Clairefontaineยฎ, to name a few, are also good options.

You can also go creative with patterned paper provided that it is thick enough.

For a cheaper alternative, go for Bristol paper, but it usually comes in white. You may then need to use spray paint it (in bronze, gold, silver, etc.), which is good for concealing potential glue smears.

Any wood glue or any craft glue will do.
Fast drying one is a plus, but it is optional.

I personally pour some wood glue into a metallic lid. Then I apply a few drops onto the tabs with a toothpick before I spread them out in a thin layer. You need very few glue!

My third attempt at a papercraft build, took me 12 to 14 hours at least. Excellent template, easy to follow and clear instructions.
